    Re: What is the difference between lax and tense vowels?

    I am not a teacher.

    That's quite a big question.

    Lax vowels are also called short vowels, and tense vowels are also called long vowels.

    In one syllable words that end in a vowel, that vowel is typically tense.
    In one syllable words that end in a consonant, the vowel is typically lax.

    Compare, be - bet, say - sat, to - top, and so on.
